What is Myth?

In a time long past, the armies of the dark came again into the lands of men...

Myth Screenshot: The Stair of GriefMyth is a real time tactical game based on squad and unit management rather than resource gathering and expansion. Thanks to a realistic physics engine and meticulous unit balance, gameplay is highly varied and flexible. Your success or failure will be dictated by clear planning, an understanding of the terrain and an ability to mobilise your troops effectively; brute force alone will likely get you killed.

Set against the backdrop of an ancient cyclical struggle, Myth II tracks the progress of the forces of light in an epic crusade for survival. The wild lands and immersive history of Myth—influenced heavily by mythology and literature—provide an exquisite setting for the desperate battle to defeat Soulblighter's dark minions, and secure the fate of the world.

The faithful fan community that has sprung up around the game as a result, has produced an incredible array of 3rd party maps and add-ons that have further extended the life of the series. You can get involved too with the bundled mapmaking tools and community-run servers currently in operation.

What's New?

Originally released by Bungie in 1997, Myth defined a completely new genre. However, with today's standards in hardware, the game has grown somewhat dated. With development now the responsibility of the community, Project Magma have brought Myth up to date. It's now playable on all current hardware and boasts some exciting new features that have hardly affected the system requirements.
